Conceptual designs for the $159m Steeles West Station in Toronto, Canada, have been unveiled.

Part of the Spadina-York subway extension, the design is expected to be approved by the Toronto Transit Commission on 2 February 2011.

The original design by Richard Stevens Architects and Alsop Architects, approved in 2009, has been modified to include relocation of the main entrance on the north side of Steeles Avenue, redesign of two station entrances, relocation of TTC's traction power substation, addition of a new east-west road and a bus terminal with parking for 1,850 vehicles.

The futuristic open-air design features solid weathering steel panel-clad entrance buildings and substations.

The entire Spadina-York subway extension is slated to be complete by late 2015, according to CBC news.
